Workshop Foreman – Auckland

Our client has a large fleet of modern coaches and buses with an average age of 7 years, and sizes ranging from 21 to 50 odd seaters. They have been operating in New Zealand for over 75 years and provide both luxurious but modern cross-country trips for tour groups and the likes, and as a contractor to Auckland transport for their intra-city bus routes. They have recently fitted Wifi to their coach fleet and USB charge ports for buses.

This is a Workshop Foreman position, so you will need to be an experienced Diesel Mechanic who has prior team leading, management or supervisory experience. Based in their workshop in West Auckland, you will oversee the operation alongside the workshop planner for both the Auckland and Hamilton site.

  • Have prior experience in team leading, management or supervision
